The women of South Omo, Ethiopia

Meet the women of South Omo, Ethiopia. They are quite simply, incredible. They work from morning until night - fetching water, caring for the children and the house, cooking for their families and working in the fields. And still, many of them find the time and energy to carry huge piles of firewood on their backs to sell at the market, trying to earn enough to feed their children.

As primary care-givers, women are the key to tackling the severe poverty that families in South Omo face, and with the help of Farm Africa's Livestock for Livelihoods project, they can do just that.

This project receives funding from UK aid from the UK government.
